The show was great The buffet dinner was OK, but nothing special. As with most buffets, it is hard to keep the food warm. Overall a good value for the price of admission.

Derby Dinner is always a great place to go. Not only do you get great food you also get great entertainment. We go several times a year depending on what is playing. Haven't been disappointed yet.
